In the EER tool - which is already brilliant - would it be possible to have:

a) ...the Enter key open up the current selected table, layer, relation, etc.?
b) ...the Tab key move to the next table, relation, etc?  (I realize that "next" may be a bit ambiguous, but I would assume you could check position on the window objects and pick the closest item to the left or down (i.e. English reading order)).
c) ...editable toolbar so that the tools can be rearranged.

And finally...

d) When creating a table, would it be possible to have a Shift-Tab go back to whereever the Tab left?

How to repeat:
a) Create a EER diagram.  Add a table.  Making sure the table is selected, press the Enter key.  Nothing happens.  
b) Create another table and try to Tab or Shift-Tab between them.  Nothing happens.
c) If there's a way to rearrange the buttons on the toolbar, I'm not seeing it.
d) Create a table and double click on it to open.  Enter the id column name and Tab, type and Tab, and tab again.  The cursor should be on the next field name.  Press Shift-Tab and the cursor does not go back to the previous field type.

thanks for the detailed report and the interesting ideas.
these are a bunch of things to cover. we have yet to decide which points (to which extent) we can implement.
